Golden Section corrections


Two small errors have crept into the diagrams for my second Goldfinger Proportions article (aj 20.11.97) as they appear in your pages; the upper Golden Section rectangle on the tallest block of Alexander Fleming House should include the parapet, and the Golden Section 'voids' across the middle of Balfron Tower should exclude the parapets.

On another point, the caption to the illustration of Le Corbusier's Ozenfant studio applies to the right-hand elevation printed but not to the left.
